Animal's Greetings

Maine, 08-12-2018 

Hello my friends
 
It's been another peaceful week around
the Pearce's Place.  Judy and I went up
to Caribou Maine and I got my drivers
license renewed and it cost 30 dollars :)
Oh well,  I'm good for another 6 years.
I don't drive that much,  but there are
times that I am needed to drive,  so it's
good for me to have a drivers license.
Plus there are times that I set out to
take pictures on my own and I need a
drivers license to do that.  I will often
head out looking for good shots and
then pull to the side of the road and
start snapping pictures.  But of course
most of my picture taking is done with
Judy driving and me snapping away
at everything and anything hehehehe.
I have yet to of gotten started getting
my book 8 ready for publication,  but
I will LOL.  I don't see no hurry.  It's
not like the world will stop if I go too
slow hehehe.  Anyways,  I have already
begun writing for book 9 and I've got
31 poetry pictures written for it LOL.
Many ask me how I am able to write
so many poems and I honestly do not
know other than the fact is that I am
a poet and that's what I do hehehe :)
Of course my gift came from God and
I try to use it to the best of my ability.
Anyways,  so what else has gone on in
this house?  Well,  we finally gave the
boys a much needed haircut or shave
as is turned out.  Yep,  we gave them
a good shaving.  They look so cute :)
almost like they did when we got them.
Although Rocky is quite a bit larger
than he was the day that we got him
in 2015 LOL.  Lil Benny hasn't grown
much.  He's close to the same size he
was when we got him in 2012.  They
are just like brothers though.  They
look out for one another and they
love to play together.   LOL since
their haircuts,  they've both been in
a feisty mood running all around the
house playing chase.  I can bet that
losing all of that hair made them feel
a lot better and gave them a lot  of
energy.  They have both been acting
just like pups since we shaved them.
I'll put a couple of pictures of them
in the stationery for those of you
that get that format LOL.  Next topic.
It seems to be cooling down a little
at a time up this ways.  It's supposed
to be in the mid to upper 70's this
week.  Right now at 2 PM it's 75 F
with a high of 78.  That's ONE reason
that I like it up here a lot better than
Texas LOL.  Of course I saw where
Greenville Texas is on a bit of a cool
side today at 78 F and a high of 82 F,
but that will not last.  So,  what else
is going on around this place?  Well
to be honest,  not much hehehehehe.
Nope,  it's been pretty docile as the
days all pass us by with autumn in
the lineup awaiting its arrival to show
us all of its magnificence and then
we'll wait the first snowflakes of winter
to display their beauty.  I do love the
snow.  I love autumn as well,  but it
is short lived and you have to look
quickly and take pictures.  I do love
it up here even if it does have a few
drawbacks.  Anywhere you go you
will find drawbacks.  It all depends
on what you are willing to live with.
and if you have money to move :)
Judy and I are enjoying the seasons.
Maybe not so much the summer LOL,
but of course without summer, the
other would become monotonous :)
We thank You Lord for all that You
have given us and done for us,  for
we know that without you we are
empty.  We are grateful for Your
many blessings that You have put
into our lives.  Now I believe it is
time for me to be reading back on
all that I've written here to see if I
can find a good word or phrase that
I can use for the title for today's new
poem.  So it's away I go to that place
of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE.  It
looks as though I may have stumbled
upon a good title just a few lines back
in my rambling about autumn LOL.
Now to see if I can do anything with it.
Here goes...
 
Awaiting Its Arrival
 
Seasons of a portions
poured out like rain
bring many viewpoints
that ones will complain.
Yet for a moment
think back on a time
of a place you remember
that was oh so fine.
It might be a doorway
to another perspective
such as a turnstile
with another directive.
A scene from childhood
that is found to breathe
a way that you one day
would simply perceive.
Remember that bicycle
or swing you swung on
of another times portal
within another dawn.
You were then always
awaiting its arrival
as if it was a moment
that gave you survival.
Time is just a moment
and then it is dust
as awaiting its arrival
needs time to adjust.
Be thankful for seconds
and minutes that shine
for they are the moments
that make life sublime.
The seasons might display
from winter to fall
that awaiting its arrival
makes us thankful for all.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe it even spoke to you. I also
hope you enjoyed my rambling hehehe.
I just got up to go and get me a drink
and Rocky wanted me to play with him.
LOL he's so cute.  They both are and
with all of that matted hair shaved off
they are both in a more playful mood :)
We had to wait for our new dog shears
to arrive before we could cut their hair.
We have 1 good pair of dog shears,  but
need 2 of them so we can work together.
We've got some old electric dog shears,
but they never did very well being they
were cheap pairs.  The boys don't spend
all of their time in here in front of the
air conditioner and fans now.  They
run throughout the house hehehehehe.
But at this moment,  they are asleep
in the floor next to Judy.  They've
learned that when I back my chair
up it's not a good idea to be under
my wheels LOL.  Anyways,  I guess
it's time for me to be telling you what
I tell you every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers,  10 more poems,  but no
extras or Christmas related poems :)
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you can find 1 or 2 of either or both
that you like.  Now with that said I
reckon it's time for me to begin my
search for that hardly elusive off,
but not before I wish you a heavenly
weekend or whatever's left of it and a
truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too :)
Now where can that ornery off switch
be hiding at this time?  Hmmmmm,
what is that movement from behind
my tissue box?  I've got to get up
and get a closer look.  Well hello
there :)  Trying a different spot huh?
Well try maybe not being so curious
about whether I can see you or not
and quit popping up to see me LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzz.
 
God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Reflected Thoughts
 
Looking seeing
times and places
brings in view
what life retraces.
It might just be
a ripple or two
that life displays
for you to view.
Maybe a scene
within the rocks
reflecting life
to turn and toss.
Becoming days
remembered well
the essence of
a thought set sail.
So many times
that carry on
as our reflections
of right or wrong.
We might not see
the views of times
that others see
inside their minds.
Reflected thoughts
of other days
wondrous thoughts
of great displays.
They might ripple
a moment's cost
viewed as but only
reflected thoughts.

Majestically
 
Found as a novel
a moment may seem
life might encompass
a magical dream.
Majestically formed
as a seasonal sight
life might become
a painters delight.
Formed from a time
on a drive one day
a time so majestic
in a wonderful way.
Scented perception
as a blue sky above
with clouds of white
and all that's thereof.
Maybe some darkness
as clouds with rain
seeking to unload it
on your windowpane.
Found in the distance
you might find true
a sight so delightful
that now lives in you.
Living as a dream
that breathes details
leaving you feeling
your on a carousel.
Beginning a design
that your eyes can see
it then becomes life
so majestically.

Say A Prayer
 
In midst of a day
say a prayer
for peace to come
with some fresh air.
When in a moment
as time flies by
say a little prayer
to the man up high.
Allow for a time
to be much more
as a little prayer
will open a door.
Look for the signs
that are all around
up in the sky
and on the ground.
Remember a time
in life of gray
and say a prayer
in a thankful way.
Look for the beauty
that seconds expose
found as a field
or one special rose.
Seek to remember
to give a little smile
when alone in time
of an awesome style.
Someone might see
as they stop and stare,
so then remember
to say a prayer.

Views Of Life
 
As stages change
to leave a path,
of times of pain
and aftermath,
it all can change
a time's detail
that might display
an awesome scale.
A sky can change
most drastically
to fit the scene
as a raging sea.
It might procure
a dismal view
that can become
as a sky of blue.
Our views of life
from day to day
might not see
beyond the gray.
For as the minutes
tick on past
they might seem
as shadows cast.
Just like a day
that's passed you by
and left a tear
within your eye.
But still with time
you can move on
with views of life
of a better dawn.

Summers Of Then
 
Then was a picture
alive to be seen
found in the waters
found after spring.
Summertime life
in a splashing style
finds many happy
as moments compile.
Scenes encompassed
as stories to tell
of summers of then
and a timeless detail.
Pages of a turnstile
become as a dream
with summertime days
in a lake or a stream.
The heat for a moment
is found but a time
in summers of then
as a magical rhyme.
Life is so special
with all that's therein
remembering moments
of summers of then.

Just A Journey
 
Lifetimes remembered
that live on our minds
are just a journey
that a moment designs.
Sometimes as bumpy
as a trail in a field
and then some others
are journeys concealed.
Hidden in clockwork
as timeless portrays
might be a journey
throughout other days.
Scented with a flavor
of life's dusty roads
is just a journey
that a moment unloads.
We're often looking
for another time's sight
and not seeing clearly
our left and our right.
Look for the blessings
that a journey presents
and find the moments
of greater extents.
For in our journeys
we might look away
and not see the best
that is coming our way.
Look along the road
of a momentous mile.
It's not just a journey,
but a time to compile.

Choice Is Within
 
The little things
our eyes may see
might become
the best to be.
A passing scene
that falls in place
a choice within
a smiling face.
Things perceived
of grasses green
might become
a wondrous scene.
Such as a style
that time unloads
within our minds
that life bestows.
A little branch
that's laid to rest
from time to time
of more or less.
It speaks words
without a sound
that eyes can see
upon the ground.
A time is seen
to choose to be
with closed eyes
or look to see.
It's a moment
to begin or end
in life of ways,
choice is within.

Mixed Emotions
 
Inside a thought
of jumbled views
you might see no
choice to choose.
A branch of life
might not be clear
that's found in life
of yesteryear.
It might be all
meshed together
mixed emotions
found wherever.
Within a moment
times portrayed
unlike orange juice
and lemonade.
The bristles might
become a chore
a time of life
to then explore.
Mixed emotions
might unwind
and live on
within your mind.
Such as limbs
of trees of life
held together with
fear and strife.
Allow some peace
to live as oceans
learned from time
as mixed emotions.

Fishing For Life
 
When in a dreamworld
of a fisherman's tale
you might uncover
some wind and a sail.
Yet as you're dreaming
you might stumble on
a time so sublime
of another days dawn.
Fishing for a moment
and fishing for a thing
while time is ticking
in a dreamers dream.
Look for the trueness
of a fishing reel
such as the blessings
your hands can feel.
Fish in the real world
and look for the truth
the peace of a moment
to live within you.
Don't let the bad times
to envelop your eyes,
look for the blessings
that time might disguise.
Maybe in a photo
of a long time ago
you might of captured
what now needs to know.
A scene of a fisherman
with his rod and reel
that's fishing for life
and a moment to feel.

Time Is A Flower
 
The beauty of a flower
is a blossoming style
scented with aromas
that give me a smile.
I find the beauty
as a wonderful thing
sounds that my eyes
can most surely sing.
Textured with life
of a flower's design,
it's a great portion
of a moment in time.
For as a flower
becomes what we see
it also might give
to a bumble bee.
Life is as nectar
in a flower's display
timelessly found
 in a wonderful way.
So many flowers
display their own style
maybe as an orchid
with its own smile.
Maybe as a rose
in the morning sun
showing us its beauty
and all that's begun.
Life is as a window
with its magical power
displaying many scenes
for time is a flower.

Haiku
for Aug 11,  2018
 
Life is a flower
that blooms of many moments
throughout destiny.
 
The feathers of time
are as the wings of a bird
that display seasons.
 
Pages of a lifetime
often have some dog eared scenes
to help remember.
 
Within a storm cloud
some peace might be awaiting
to show a rainbow.
 
Beyond a doorway
there may be many windows
awaiting for you.
 
Minds of emptiness
hold only the shell of life
with no yolk within.
 
Tomorrows forecast
is but only a mere guess,
because it's not here.
 
Even with a map
one can become lost in time
as pathways will change.
 
Looking for the truth
you might find many liars
that choose to deceive.
 
Needs that come knocking
might look to others as wants
through their greedy ways.
 
Change is a doorway
that has choices which to choose
that so many fear.
 
Compacting problems
into a much smaller view
can still mislead you.
 
The heat of moments
can become troubles doorway
just waiting for you.
 
Wintertime's memories
are as Christmastime's snowflakes
that become snowmen.
 
Losing to others
can become as a lesson
that becomes a win.
 
A page from our life
might become as a story
of another time.
 
Various windows
may have some misleading views
that are only lies.
 
A mind is wasted
when nothing is attempted
and you are static.
 
When trying too hard
you can push yourself too far
and create problems.
 
The sunshine is bright
even on a cloudy day
so do not be fooled.
 
When we move forwards
we might also go backwards
due to circumstance.
 
Life's a mystery
that many may think they know,
but they're just guessing.
